Europe’s biggest 10K running event has seen more than a quarter of a million enthusiastic runners take to the streets of Manchester since the run was established in 2003.
Broadcast live on BBC the Great Manchester Run has raised over £22 million for charity and is part of an elite group of running events with the IAAF Gold Label.
The North West’s 10K run has grown into a weekend festival of sport, including the Junior & Mini Great Manchester Run and the Great CityGames Manchester – a unique elite event that attracts some of the world’s top athletes on a purpose-built track in the heart of the city centre.
2017 will also see the introduction of a Half Marathon event which will see runners stretch from the City out to the Etihad Stadium, over to Old Trafford and then back into the city, for what is sure to be a highlight of the day.
The organisers rely on the help and support of hundreds of volunteers to make the event happen and as such are seeking volunteers for a number of roles.
Volunteers are required to assist with direction of runners around the city centre, to hand out water, to help with baggage and to hand out race souvenirs.
